Students on the MA in Public Humanities do a project module as part of their studies. This module is a practical one, working with an external partner on a defined project with a clear outcome. Usually this is some kind of event, open to members of the public who can find out what they’ve been doing over their six month placement. This year’s project is working with one of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities’ strategic partners, Sheffield Archives. They’re investigating material to do with the South Yorkshire County Council which existed in the 1980s.
Students Chantelle Francis and Sabrina Webster are working closely with Archivist Cheryl Bailey in order to complete their project. They’re blogging about their work over on the Sheffield Libraries blogging site. The first post that they’ve written can be seen here.
